"Delaware Indians acting as scouts for the Federal army in the West. General Fremont, on taking command in the West in 1861, while he shrank from employing the Indians as soldiers, saw the advantage of using them as scouts, and for this purpose organized a band of them, selecting only the most reliable, robust and best characterized. They soon made their value known by the early intelligence they brought of the enemy's movements. Some of them were also employed by General Grant." —Leslie, 1896
